 I am aware.

 I thought my above statement should have been clear enough?  Again,
I don't want to step in the way of your payrolls, and I am still a
bit disturbed by the fact that oldoldstable gets more attention than
oldstable or stable for the matter, still believe that the priorities
with respect to that are the wrong way around, but you are free to do
what you can and should do, this is still a voluntary project.

 I plan to work on 1.0.7 for unstable, haven't yet made up my mind if I
want to switch to the 1.1 branch (1.0 is said to be supported by
upstream specificly for long time, 1.2 will be the next maintenance
branch), and after that would go so-to-say "top down" from newest
release to oldest release, not the other way around.  So I won't get in
your way there unless I have enough time to get there earlier than you.

 It still would be nice to get some git patchsets for your uploads so I
can apply them to the repository, but my priorities are definitely
rather on fixing-more-current-releases-first than oldoldstable as
highest priority.

 Also looking forward to be there. :)
